Over the past nine months the 2012-2013 Dramatists Guild Fellows met as a community, and under the tutelage of Michael Korie, Diana Son and Andrea Lepcio, developed full-length plays and musicals. Founded by Lynn Ahrens and Janet Neipris, who led the program for many years along with Stephen Flaherty and Susan Miller, the Dramatists Guild Fellows Program brings together playwrights and musical theater writers to discuss their work, introduce them to experienced theater professionals, and pair them with artist mentors. The Fellows Program is administered by the Dramatists Guild of America and funded by the Dramatists Guild Fund with additional support from the Matt & Josephine Grisham Foundation and Kara Unterberg.
This year's guests and mentors include Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, David Auburn, Kirsten Childs, Bruce Coughlin, Ben Famiglietti, Liz Frankel, Daniel Goldfarb, Michael Greif, Jerome Hairston, Carol Hall, Anne Kaufman, Tom Kitt, James Lapine, Terrence McNally, Emily Morse, Itamar Moses, Marsha Norman, Lynn Nottage, Jose Rivera, Sarah Ruhl, Stephen Schwartz, Rachel Sheinkin, Eric Stern, Alfred Uhry, Jeanine Tesori, John Weidman, Michael Weller, Tracey Scott Wilson, and Doug Wright.
